Meghan Markle and Prince Harry married today, making history with their nuptials. Their coupling has been praised by many for disregarding the what’s typically taboo for the Royal family, as Markle is a woman of color, divorcée, and self-proclaimed feminist.

Markle’s nephew, Tyler Dooley, is celebrating without regards to what’s taboo as well. Dooley, son of Markle’s step-brother, is a licensed cannabis farmer who cultivates in Oregon. Dooley has developed a strain in honor of Meghan Markle tying the knot- he calls it “Markle Sparkle.” The strain will be grown in California and Oregon, but only distributed in California until further notice.

Dooley told Leafbuyer that Markle Sparkle is a sativa dominant, high yielding strain that will be revealed on June 2nd at the NorCal High Times Cannabis Cup. The strain is a cross between Blue City Diesel, Blueberry Northern Lights, and a third “secret strain.” Dooley says Markle Sparkles smells like blueberries.

Dooley and his mother both said they would enjoy speaking to Harry and Meghan about cannabis and educate them on the medicinal benefits. Dooley said he’s sure Meghan has “an American view on pot,” as Markle was born in California.He added that he knows the prince likes a good party, lest we forget when Harry was famously caught smoking cannabis when he was 17 and went to rehab.

The wedding itself strayed from the stiff and staunch Royal weddings of the past. A gospel choir that sang “Stand By Me” and “This Little Light of Mine.”

Reverand Michael Curry, a bishop of the Episcopal Church, delivered a sermon where he said, “I’m talking about some power, real power. Power to change the world. If you don’t believe me, well, there were some old slaves in America’s Antebellum South who explained the dynamic power of love and why it has the power to transform.”
